Sami: My mother is not even cold in her grave, and you're already out celebrating.
John: That's not true, Samantha.
Kate: You know, it seems to me that you're celebrating as well, Sami.
Sami: Only because your son insisted. I didn't want to go anywhere.
Lucas: I was worried about her, all right? I thought it would do her good to get her out of the house.
John: You're not the only one grieving here. Yes, you lost your mother, but I lost my wife, and that is the woman that I loved --
Sami: Oh, look, save it, John. Don't even try to pretend to be heartbroken with me, okay? I know you're happy that my mom is dead, because now you get to be with Kate.
Lucas: Sami, come on.
Kate: No, what have I been telling you? Lucas, that girl is crazy. She's crazy, and you have to stay away from her.
Lucas: Excuse me.
Lucas: Sami! Sami! Hey!
Belle: Hey, Lucas.
Lucas: Belle. Hey, thanks for coming. I really appreciate it.
Belle: Yeah, I got here as soon as I could. How's Sami?
Lucas: Worse than ever.
Belle: I know how Sami gets when things like this happen.
Lucas: Yeah, and I don't even know if you can do any good. I don't know if anyone can. I just thought it'd be worth a shot.
Belle: Actually, I have an idea, and it's something that'll get my sister's attention in a very big way.
Lexie: [Groans] Easy instructions. I swear, you need an engineering license. Oh, Abe. I miss you so much.
Lexie: [Gasps] Tek, hi.
Tek: Hey, lex.
Lexie: Come in.
Tek: Thanks. Hope you don't mind my dropping by. I just got off duty. I thought I'd stop by and see, uh, see how you were doing, see if, uh, Theo wanted to toss that football around. I -- I'm sorry. I should have called. This is a bad time.
Lexie: No, no, no. Your timing is perfect. I really need a man right now.
Marlena: There will be more deaths. Everyone in Salem will die.
Celeste: Is it possible? Could Marlena's prediction be true? Oh, Abraham. If only you were here to help us.
Marlena: I don't understand. We're right here in Alice's house. Itís... just like the one she lived in forever. The same furniture. The paintings. Everything is the same.
Roman: But it's not her house, doc. It's an exact replica, set in a town that looks exactly like Salem, except none of our loved ones are here.
Marlena: You're here. Alice is here. You're alive. Alice. I can't believe she's alive.
Roman: Alive and well... and taking fresh-baked cookies out of the oven as we speak.
Marlena: Roman, how can that be? How can -- how can she be baking cookies with all this going on?
Roman: She's just trying to keep busy, that's all. She misses her family so much -- Jennifer, Hope, Julie, Mickey.
Marlena: It doesn't make sense. Any of it -- it doesn't make sense at all. You and Alice are both alive, and we're all living in this alternate universe Salem. I-I-I'm having a very hard time accepting all that.
Roman: I know that, doc. Believe me. I felt exactly the same way when I got here. We all did.
Marlena: Roman, a moment ago, I thought I was a murderer. I thought I killed so many people -- you, Alice, the others. [Gasps] Roman... I-I killed Abe -- your friend, your partner. I shot him. I shot him on his way to his son's christening. Wait a minute. Roman... do you suppose -- do you suppose maybe that's not true? Do you suppose I didn't do that? Is it possible that -- is it possible that Abe is --
Abe: That's right, Marlena. I am.
Abe: You didn't kill me.
Marlena: Oh. Oh! Oh. It's you. It's you.
Roman: Oh, doc. How are you going to deal with the rest of what we have to tell you?
Celeste: Oh, dear Marlena, I pray that you'll at last find peace in the afterlife. May your restless spirit be free of the forces of darkness.
Roman: Marlena? Doc, wake up. Wake up.
Marlena: Oh. Oh, my Godh, Roman.
Roman: Yes. Yes, you fainted.
Marlena: Mm. Yeah. I had the strangest vision. I know I killed Abe, but I -- I thought he was here.
Marlena: I thought he was right here. Right here in the room with us.
Abe: Marlena. You're awake.
Marlena: Oh, no! Abe! You're here! Ha ha ha! I didn't kill you! Oh, thank God!
Abe: No, no. That's right, you didn't kill me. I'm right here in the flesh.
Marlena: [Sobbing] Oh! Uh... I better sit down.
Abe: Yes. Here you go. Here you are.
Marlena: All righty. What happened? Tell me what happened. Tell me everything, from the very beginning.
Roman: From the very beginning?
Roman: All right. Well, of course Abe was the first to arrive, and, uh, naturally he thought he was in Salem.
Abe: Except everyone had disappeared. The whole town was deserted. It was like that old "twilight zone."
Marlena: That must have been terrifying for you.
Abe: That doesn't even begin to describe it. I searched for my family for days. I looked everywhere. I wouldn't give up... until slowly I began to realize that I wasn't in Salem anymore. The real Salem. Hell, I wasn't en in the U.S.
Marlena: The U.S.? What are you talking about?
Roman: We're actually... on an island.
Roman: Based on the weather, Abe and I figure we're, uh, somewhere in the tropics.
Abe: It's like we're in paradise. An exact replica of our hometown, the Salem we've always loved.
Roman: Only it sure as hell isn't paradise. Because, you see, doc, we're trapped here with no way out.
Lexie: What I meant is that I am so grateful that you're here. I could rely use some tech support with this remote control train I'm putting together for Theo's birthday. I can't seem to figure out these instructions. It's like they're written in another language.
Tek: Well, I'd be happy to see what I can do.
Lexie: Would you?
Tek: Yeah, let's see what we got here. [Sighs] All right...
Lexie: Wow. Well, you made it look so easy. Oh, I feel like an idiot.
Tek: Ah, come on, you're not an idiot. I just happen to have a way with this kind of stuff.
Lexie: Well, I most definitely donít. I pretty much depended on Abe for all the handy work. I know, I know, I know. It sounds old-fashioned. Here I can perform complicated surgery, but when it comes to putting some silly toy together, I'm all thumbs. This past Christmas, I nearly had a nervous breakdown.
Tek: Well, I'm sure that couldn't have been easy. I mean, it was your first Christmas without Abe.
Lexie: Yeah. Well, it seems that this year I count everything as a first without Abe. I can buy out the whole toy store, but I can't give my little boy the one thing that he wants most -- his daddy back.
Lucas: There's someone I want you to talk to.
Belle: Hey, Sami.
Sami: What's going on?
Belle: Um, you'll see.
Sami: Belle, who do you want me to talk to? Not that it's going to do any good.
Belle: I can't tell you. Not yet.
Sami: Was this your idea, Lucas? Do you know what this is all about?
Lucas: No, no idea. I was worried about you. Belle said she knew what to do.
Belle: Trust me, Sami. It's going to be fine.
Sami: Trust you? Why do you keep saying that, when you don't trust me enough to actually tell me what's going on?
John: Hey, sweetheart.
Belle: Hey, Dad.
John: What are you doing here, baby?
Belle: Mm, I just, you know, came by to see Sami. I didn't know you were going to be here. How are you?
John: Just, uh, hanging in there. Yourself?
Belle: About the same.
John: Well, I'm glad that you're here for your sister. I know that your mother would want us all to try to get through this as a family.
Sami: Don't use the word family in front of me, John. You're not my father. My mother and my father are dead because of you and Kate.
Belle: Sami, stop it. Not only is that ridiculous, but it's not helping anything. Dad, can I talk to you later? I want to take Sami someplace private so we can try and work this out.
John: That's a good idea. I love you.
Belle: Love you, too. How about we go now?
Sami: Go where? You know what? Never mind. Anywhere is better than here.
Belle: Come on.
Kate: What is going on?
Lucas: I called Belle to help Sami. I thought maybe she could get through to her. I don't know, she said something about a plan, she knew what to do.
Kate: Lucas, come on. No one's gonna get through to that girl.
John: Regardless, that's very thoughtful of you, Lucas. That's a nice thing to do for Sami. I know that she can be difficult sometimes.
John: She is also Marlena's daughter, and I can't forget that. I won't forget that.
Kate: Well, she's also Roman's daughter. I know that, and I know that I promised him I would try to get along with her, but she's just making it impossible. And what really hurts me is that she's forcing me to break the vow that I made to my husband on our wedding day -- the same day he died.
Marlena: Wait a minute. What do you mean, we're trapped here?
Roman: Well, doc, as we said, this other Salem is situated on an island, and very clearly far away from the real Salem.
Abe: And from everything we can tell, there seems to be no way off.
Marlena: I don't understand.
Roman: Neither do we. We have no idea what the hell we're doing here, or why any of us are here.
Abe: We seem to be sentenced to a term in a very familiar, very comfortable prison.
Roman: With all the creature comforts -- food, water, clothing, shelter. Anything we could ever want or need is right here.
Abe: Except for the people we love.
Roman: We have no way to communicate with the outside world. No way to get back to the real Salem.
Marlena: Everybody thinks you are dead. We've got to find a way to let them know.
Abe: I would give anything if we could. It just kills me to think what Lexie's going through on her own.
Lexie: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to fall apart on you like that.
Tek: Nothing to be sorry for. I understand. I know how much you miss Abe.
Lexie: It just feels like an eternity since he's been gone.
Tek: Look, I hope I wasn't out of line dropping by like this to --
Lexie: No, no. Really, I'm happy you're here, Tek. I'm grateful. Would you do me a favour?
Lexie: Theo is upstairs napping, and he really needs to wake up, or I'll never get him to go to sleep tonight. Would you mind keeping him busy while I wrap a few presents?
Tek: Yeah, not to worry. I'll have him passing like a pro by the time you finish.
Lexie: Really, thank you for everything.
Tek: My pleasure.
Lexie: Well, I'll let you know when the coast is clear, okay?
Tek: All right.
Lexie: Mom. How long have you been standing there?
Celeste: Long enough to see that you are making a very big mistake.
John: Kate, if you don't mind my saying so, I think it might help if you would cut Sami some slack. I mean, Lucas has.
Kate: Lucas is falling for Sami's manipulations.
Lucas: Why don't you cut us both some slack and give us a chance as a couple before you start in with your attitude?
Kate: What? A couple?
John: If you both will excuse me, I really have some phone calls I need to make.
Kate: Lucas, what --
Lucas: No, I thought I made it perfectly clear to you that I plan to have a future with Sami, so just accept it.
Kate: A future?
Kate: What on earth -- what do you mean? What are you saying to me?
Lucas: What do you think I'm saying? I want to have a family with Sami and will. And that means someday I plan to marry her.
Sami: So, what, Belle? This is who you wanted me to talk to? You thought you could come down here and have a little family counselling with Mom's ghost?
Belle: No, Sami, of course not. I just wanted to get you out of the blue note.
[Cellular phone rings]
Belle: Here. Well, answer it.
Sami: Hello? Brandon?
Celeste: Look, I'm sorry, darling, but this just isn't right.
Lexie: What isn't right? What are you talking about?
Celeste: Oh, Alexandra, I saw you flirting with Tek just now. And I -- well, darling, I just don't think you're ready. You're still mourning Abraham.
Lexie: Oh, my God, Mom, I was not flirting.
Celeste: You know, when Tek was last here, I read his cards. Before you got home, that is. And I learned quite a bit about him, you see, including the fact that he is Romantically interested in you.
Abe: Theo's birthday's coming up, and I won't be there. I can't tell you how much I miss him and Lexie. I think about them all the time. I know how much they're suffering.
Roman: I feel the same way about Kate. When I think of how I was taken from her on our wedding night and the pain she must be suffering, thinking I was brutally murdered...
Marlena: She's still suffering. She hasn't been the same since. I feel responsible for that.
Roman: My God. This can't be happening.
Marlena: I stabbed you, Roman.
Roman: No, doc.
Marlena: I know what I did... and I know this story you're telling me isn't true. The truth is that we're all dead, we're in purgatory, and I'm on the way to hell.
Abe: Oh, Marlena --
Marlena: It is the only thing that makes any sense, Abe. I killed people. I'm being punished for it, and I deserve that, for the people that I murdered. I deserve to be punished. I deserve it.
Sami: Brandon, I can't believe it's you. I never thought I'd hear from you again. If you're so worried, why don't you come back home, back to Salem? It felt like you died when you left me, Brandon, when I realized that the future that I had dreamed of for us was never going to happen. Brandon, I-I hear you. I'm listening. It's just -- I just don't think I can do what you're asking me to.
Kate: Did I hear you right? Did I just hear you say that you're going to marry Sami?
Lucas: Oh, yeah.
Kate: Have you forgotten about Austin?
Lucas: She has changed.
Kate: Really? She's changed? Did you just hear how she spoke to John and me? She accused us of being murderers, Lucas.
Lucas: Why do you think I'm so worried about her, huh? She's completely convinced that she's lost the very last anchor in her life. She doesn't know what she's saying. She doesn't mean anything. Look, you of all people should understand that.
Kate: What I understand is grieving. I understand grieving, but I will never understand Sami under any circumstances.
Lucas: Yeah, well, you know what? I do. I understand her.
Kate: Oh, really?
Lucas: At least I'm beginning to. Mom, deep down in that heart of hers, she's just a poor little scared little girl who needs love and attention.
Kate: Oh, please. She has really sucked you in, hasn't she? So now you think you're going to save her? Well, you know what I think? I think you just need to be needed, so you have made Sami your project, because you have a total lack of purpose in your life, Lucas.
Lucas: Oh, really?
Kate: No, no, no. Listen to me. You're no longer working for Tony. You're not working for that mobster anymore, and that's -- that's a good thing. But now you need a decent job, and you need direction, Lucas, so why don't you come and work at basic black for me, the way we talked about before? I mean, I can send you to Europe. You can run a division there.
Lucas: You tried that before with Sami. In fact, you tried every trick in the book to keep us apart, and it's just not going to work, you got it? So excuse me. As far as I'm concerned, this conversation's over. Forget it.
Kate: I know I promised Roman that I would take care of Sami, but I'll be damned if I'll let her marry my son.
John: Thanks, Brady, but, no, thereís... really nothing you can do. Kid, hold on. I got another call. John Black. My God. It can't be. Doc?
Roman: [Sighs] Doc, it's no use. The phones here only make local calls. You can't reach anyone in Salem -- not the real Salem, anyway.
Marlena: How can that be? This can't be happening.
Roman: Come with me. I want to show you something.
Marlena: Oh, wait, wait. Where are you going?
Roman: I'm going to prove to you once and for all that everything I told you is true.
Alice: Would you care for a cookie, darling? They're just fresh out of the oven.
Abe: No, thank you, Mrs. Horton.
Abe: Here, let me help you with that.
Alice: Ha ha.
Abe: There you are.
Alice: Well... thinking about Lexie, aren't you, dear?
Abe: You know, I wish I'd asked Marlena more about her. I worry about her and Theo, how they're accepting my death and how they're getting along without me.
Alice: Well... it's been hard for Lexie, but... she's a strong woman. You know that.
Abe: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, she is, but the more time goes by, the more I worry. You know, for so long, I-I -- I convinced myself that we would be rescued, and it's that one hope, that one hope that's gotten me through. And now I see this plot, this, uh... whatever it is, it's so complicated, so carefully orchestrated right down to the last detail. Our friends and family in Salem may never know we're alive. We may never get home.
Alice: Now, you mustn't think that way, dear. We mustn't give up hope.
Abe: You know, lately, I've even started to wish -- oh, God help me -- that Lexie and Theo would end up here, that we'd be reunited. That's -- that's a horrible thing. It's a horrible thing, I know, to wish that on anybody, a whole life as a prisoner, just cut off from anything that's real. They don't deserve that. And even so... I wonder which is worse, here or -- or the pain that Lexie's going through thinking I'm dead.
Alice: Or is it you're afraid that she'll go on with her life without you?
Lexie: Mom, I'm sorry, but just because you interpreted some tarot cards to mean that Tek is interested in me doesn't actually mean that he is.
Celeste: Cards don't lie, Alexandra.
Lexie: Okay, fine, fine. Even if Tek were interested, which he is not, I'm not going to just start dating anyone, let alone Tek. I don't even know him. And... more importantly... I would feel guilty even thinking about going out with another man. It'd be like cheating on Abe. I still wear my wedding ring, Mom. I-I can't bring myself to take it off. I know, I know I have to accept that Abe really is gone and he's not coming back.
Roman: So now you've seen with your very own eyes. This isn't Salem. This isn't even hell. We are on an island in the middle of an ocean.
Marlena: Completely cut off from all the world?
Roman: It appears that way, although we haven't been able to explore the whole perimeter.
Marlena: Have you tried to escape?
Roman: Every which way we can. We even built a raft, but the currents were too rough, and, uh, with Mrs. H., We couldn't -- couldn't take a risk.
Marlena: Then it's true. Roman, they think that you're dead. They think that I killed you, that -- they think that I'm dead. John, Belle, Sami, Carrie, Eric -- they're all devastated.
Roman: I know. I know that. And that -- that is the hardest part, thinking about the loved ones we left behind.
Marlena: I'm worried about Sami the most, thinking that both of her parents are dead -- well, that could just put her right over the edge.
Belle: What happened? Did Brandon make you feel better? What did he say?
Sami: He, um, said he was really sorry about Mom, and... he told me that I couldn't let the pain overwhelm me, that I couldn't let it destroy me. All that counsellor-speak.
Belle: But you know he's right.
Sami: He also said that he wasn't coming back, that I need to move on with my life. How am I supposed to do that, Belle, when everyone I love ends up leaving me?
John: Doc? Is it really you? Say something, doc. Answer me. Oh.
John: Brady, are you there? No one. Must have been the wrong number. Actually, kid, I thought I just heard Marlena's voice. Yeah, I know, it's crazy. I'm turning into Sami. I'm starting to hear things. It just -- it just doesn't seem real that she's gone.
Kate: Lucas. Lucas, will you please listen to me? This girl is a viper. She has you under her spell, and you have to find a way to break it. You have to be strong, or believe me, you're going to live to regret it.
Lucas: You're wrong, all right? You're wrong. Now, will wants a family, and that's what I'm going to give him -- a family that gets along, that talks to each other, and loves each other, 'cause that's what he wants. Now, my relationship with Sami is the best it's ever been. Believe me, it's going to keep getting better. Excuse me. I got to go.
Lucas: To find Sami, make sure she's okay.
Kate: Oh, my God. I can't let this happen. I have to find a way to stop it before it goes any further.
Sami: Look, Belle... I loved Austin, and he left me. I loved Brandon, and he left me. I'm not going to put myself through that again, okay? I'm just not going to go through that kind of pain. It's -- it's never going to work out for me.
Sami: No. I have to just accept it. I'm alone now, and I'm going to be alone forever.
Belle: That is not true. Why would you say that? You have me. You have your family. You have will, you have Eric, your grandpa Shawn, all of the Bradys -- we all love you. And Lucas really cares about you a lot -- I can tell. He was so worried about you when he called me.
Sami: I know what you're trying to do, Belle, and it is not going to work. I'm not going to put myself through that kind of pain again. I'm never going to be with Lucas -- never, never, never.
Marlena: Roman... I'm so worried about Sami. You know, she took your death so hard.
Roman: When she thought you were the killer, she didn't -- she didn't go after you?
Marlena: No, the opposite. Sami never believed that I was guilty. Even with a mountain of evidence piling up against me, she never thought that -- she never thought that I was capable of murder. She never lost faith in me. I wish I had some of her faith. I still feel as though I... must have been somehow responsible.
Roman: But you werenít. Sami was absolutely right to believe in you. I'm proud of her.
Marlena: You know Sami. You know how she gets when she's been hurt or upset. She lashes out at everybody around her. She even went as far as to -- to blame John and Kate for framing me for the murders.
Roman: Ah. She and Kate are still at odds?
Marlena: You might say that.
Roman: I had asked Kate to try to make an effort with Sami, try to be there for her stepdaughter.
Marlena: That won't happen. Sami won't even talk to her. Sami still believes in her heart that... you and I should always be together, we never should have separated.
Abe: Yeah. Yeah. Well, you're right, Mrs. Horton. I admit that, especially with Lexie thinking I'm dead, that part of me is afraid that she's going to... find someone else, move on without me, especially since that's exactly what I told her to do. You know, as a police officer, there's always that possibility, and I told Lexie that she would have to be strong and find a way to go on.
Alice: But now?
Abe: Mrs. Horton, what -- what if she takes my advice? What if she finds another man, another father for Theo?
Lexie: I have to accept that Abe... really is gone, and unless I want to spend the rest of my life alone... which I very well may, because I can assure you, Mom, I am not ready for any other man.
Celeste: Even Tek, darling? He is quite attractive.
Lexie: Yes, yes, he is. He has lots of wonderful qualities. But I'm just not in a place where I want to start dating anyone, okay?
Lexie: Mom what -- what is it? What's wrong?
Celeste: A very... disturbing vibration. Darling, something is wrong. Something is very wrong.
Kate: I'm worried about Lucas. He's going to be seriously hurt if he insists on pursuing a future with Sami.
John: Mm, you don't know that, Kate. You know, no one can -- well, unless you're Celeste, of course -- no one can look into the future. Look what happened to us. We found our soul mates, we thought we were going to live with them forever, but fate had other choices, didn't it? What it has in store for Sami and Lucas is anybody's guess.
Kate: [Thinking] Except I'm not leaving it up to fate. I'll protect my son from Sami Brady if it's the last thing I do.
Belle: Sami, why would you say never? God, why did I think that phone call with Brandon was going to actually help you? If that ends up ruining your future with Lucas, I'm never going to forgive myself.
Sami: Oh, Belle, stop. Sweetie, it's not about you, and it's not about Brandon, either. Look, the bottom line is Lucas is Kate's son. There's no way that I could ever really love him.
Belle: So you're not even going to give it a chance? Sami, you're only going to hurt yourself.
Sami: Belle, I have made up my mind. Look, here I am. Standing in front of my mother's grave, I will swear that there is never going to be a future for me and Lucas.
Lexie: Mom, please. I'm really not sure I can take any more of your vibes. You know, I was hoping that with the killings over, with Marlena dead and buried, that would be the end of your doom-and-gloom prophecies.
Celeste: Oh, but, darling, no. This isn't about the serial killer. It's about Tek. He is a very complicated young man, and, darling, he may yet have some surprises in store for you.
Tek: Lexie, you got to come see this. He's throwing the football like, uh... oh, hey, miss perrault. I didn't know you were here.
Celeste: Hello, Tek. It seems that you and my grandson are becoming fast friends, huh?
Tek: He's a great kid. You know, I love spending time with him. Hope I can do it more often.
Lexie: I'm sure he'd like that. So would I.
Alice: Again, Abe, you must not think like that. You must have faith that we'll be rescued, that we'll return to our families.
Abe: I hope it happens soon... before it's too late. Before Lexie's moved on with someone else.
Roman: Yeah, well, uh... I guess Sami never would give up that dream she had for us.
Marlena: Yeah. That dream is over. Now it's a nightmare, one she never could have imagined.
Roman: None of us could have imagined it. A living nightmare. That's just exactly what it is.
Marlena: Is there something you're not telling me?
Roman: Doc, come on, no.
Marlena: You haven't said a word ab-- you must have some idea who did this, who's behind all this madness.
